Dear Fathers and Brothers:
The theme of the 2021 Thank Offering for the Worldwide Outreach ministries of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church is “A Very Present Help” from Psalm 46:1. The goal this year is to raise $1,200,000 through the Thank Offering for the ministries of Foreign Missions, Home Missions, and Christian Education.
Please promote the Thank Offering through prayer, sermons, and Sunday School lessons on Psalm 46, and special events such as a Thank Offering banquet or Thanksgiving Day service.
You will be receiving one or more Thank Offering posters, three sets of bulletin inserts, and remittance envelopes sent out by the staff at the OPC Administrative Building. We suggest that the bulletin inserts be distributed on the three Lord’s Days prior to the collection of the Thank Offering. For example, if your collection is planned for the Lord’s Day of November 28, begin the distribution of the bulletin inserts on the Lord’s Day of November 7. The remittance envelopes should be included with the third bulletin insert.
We will also be sending the poster and inserts this year in digital form in the next week. Please post these PDFs on your website and include in your newsletters and digital bulletins.
We thank you for your faithful support of the ministries of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.
